Konami Won’t Be Patching Silent Hill HD on Xbox 360

There’s good news and bad news, Silent Hill HD Collection fans. The good news: a patch is incoming to fix the buggy semi-disaster that is Konami’s re-release of some classic Silent Hill titles.

Bad news: it’s only coming to Playstation 3. If you’re an Xbox 360 owner, you’re SOL on getting a working version of the game.

Konami has said that while it’ll be sending out a patch to Playstation 3 players, there’s trouble on the Xbox side of things. Here’s the developer’s announcement:

“Plans for an Xbox 360 title update have been cancelled due to technical issues and resources,” announced the publisher. “Understanding the issues some users are experiencing, Konami issued a title update for Silent Hill HD Collection (PS3), which fixed frame rate issues as well as audio-synching and other reported issues. KONAMI apologizes to any players who are continuing to experience these issues on the Xbox 360 sku. Silent Hill HD Collection is available at retail stores nationwide.”

So there you go — be warned. The Xbox version of Silent Hill HD is broken. Konami is fully aware that it’s broken. And it’ll sell it to you anyway. Lucky you.

I usually dont comment on news , but this behaviour is unacceptable from Konami and I gotta express the awful feeling of desperation it gives too all gamers .

Expending 60 bucks on a new game ? Well maybe if your are luck you will even be able to play it !

Next step is selling bug fixes as DLC packages (I am looking at you EA).

If you have both consoles, I’d strongly recommend getting the game on PS3 even without the tech issues, since you get two separate trophy lists each with a platinum compared to a combined achievement list only worth the same as one regular game on 360. 360 owners really got shafted on this one.

So, is this a “whoever wins, we lose” by Jim Sterlign hidden backlash?
